Evelyn Smythe

Last updated 22 April 2015




Evelyn Smythe, later Evelyn Rossiter (born 1945), was an accomplished academic, rather closer to the end of her long career than the beginning. Depending on her audience, she was known as Professor Smythe, Doctor Smythe or just plain Evelyn. As a professor of history, she was very interested in the TARDIS' time travel capabilities. Like Barbara Wright before her, she occasionally found theories to which she had devoted much of her career proven wrong by examining events first-hand.

Her history with the Doctor was complicated. She was the Sixth Doctor's active companion and made several visits long after she had departed.
